September is prostate cancer awareness month, and we are proud to partner with The Indiana Cancer Consortiumâ€™s Prostate Cancer Coordinating Committee to present â€œLife with Prostate Cancer,â€ a seminar for prostate cancer patients, survivors, and loved ones. This seminar is designed to provide prostate cancer patients with information to live life more fully after diagnosis and treatment.
The seminar will be held at our facility on Tuesday, September 11, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., and features keynote presentations from Dr. Donald Urban of Parkview Physicians Group, as well as Dr. Theodore Wagner of Northeast Indiana Urology. Bill Seidel, a prostate cancer survivor, will give a special guest presentation on â€œTricks Learned in Dealing with Prostate Cancer.â€ Topics of discussion will include survivorship, intimacy, and treatment.
